Travel with us to a land teeming with life, beauty and abundance: Costa Rica. For one week in March, we will immerse ourselves in the living classroom of Finca Luna Nueva (New Moon Farm). This extraordinary getaway is also a working farm and educational center. The hosts have deep ties to the land and are leaders in regenerative agricultural practices. They lovingly cultivate hundreds of species of fruit and vegetables, as well as more than 300 medicinal plants. We are so excited to share this magical and sacred place with you.
Each morning the rainforest itself will inspire your yoga, as we move through an invigorating vinyasa practice accompanied by a playlist of bird and frog songs. Around the open aired yoga pavilion the vibrant greens and supercharged air of the jungle inspire awareness and conscious breathing. In the afternoons we will practice at a slower and softer pace as we integrate the day's adventures and turn our attention to the inner realm of our true nature.
During this retreat, you will have an opportunity to:
Refresh your senses, reengage with your body, and recommit to your health.
Reconnect to nature as you spend your days in the pristine rainforest and relax in natural hot springs fed by the Volcano Arenal.
Develop personal practices that nourish your spirit and reunite you with your own radiance.
ALL levels of yoga experience welcome!
We are so excited to share this incredible week with you. Together we will practice yoga, pranayama, and meditation each day, dine on delicious organic meals, soak in the lodge's chlorine-free pool and solar powered hot tub. Together, we’ll go on several adventures: a tour of the farm, soaking in the volcanic fed hotsprings, and learning how chocolate is made. You can choose additional adventures or spa treatments, or just unwind by the pool with that book you've been wanting to read.
“This retreat was one of the finest experiences of my life. The teaching was on another level and the environment couldn’t be matched. For me the trip was one of the most memorable I've ever had and you & Oliver were major contributors to the experience. You taught me a lot just from watching the relationship each of you had with your own bodies. That may sound strange but there's no other way to express it. I saw gentleness, respect, awareness. You've opened up a door for me because it's motivated me to continue on with the journey. I plan to get more focused on my yoga and I look forward to whatever changes that will bring, going forward.” ~ Sherry Hooper
